A Festive Fourth

Braves Game

It was a very rainy 4th of July this year, but that didn’t stop us from having a good time. We moved our pool party celebration inside and enjoyed lots of festive and delicious food, drank sangria, and lit sparklers on the porch. It literally rained ALL day! I thought the Braves game might get cancelled, but they played anyway. Luckily, we had some ponchos to keep us dry. The rain stopped just in time for some post-game entertainment from Corey Smith and a private fireworks show. Despite the terrible weather, this was one of the best 4th of July’s ever. I’m so glad I got to celebrate America’s birthday surrounded by friends and family!
